WHITE GHOST 3% is applied with all low expansion foam equipment and installations, including sub-surface and semi sub-surface systems. It can be used as a preventative measure to cover spills of volatile liquids. The foam blanket suppresses evaporation, preventing emission of flammable and toxic gases. Fire risk and environmental impact are thereby reduced considerably. This foam concentrate is typically used in chemical and petrochemical industries, at airports and in offshore installations.
WHITE GHOST 3% is a superior fire extinguishing agent for fires of class A and B.
DIN EN 1568, Part 3: IIA/IIA
According to UL 162
Mixing for immediate use:
WHITE GHOST 3% may be mixed, in any proportion, with other fluoroprotein foam concentrates when used immediately.
Mixing for long term storage:
Mixing of WHITE GHOST 3% with other Fluorprotein foam concentrates and subsequent storage is not recommended. When WHITE GHOST 3% is to be added to existing stocks of foaming agents we recommend to have the quality of the available stock tested by our laboratory.
Mixing with synthetic concentrates:
WHITE GHOST 3% must not be mixed with synthetic foam concentrates. Even small quantities may render the relevant products unusable.
Mixing with other expanded foams:
Foam generated from WHITE GHOST 3%, during a firefighting operation, is compatible with all other readily expanded fire extinguishing foams, including expanded synthetic foams.
Compatibility with powder
WHITE GHOST 3% foam is suitable for combined use with foam compatible dry chemical powders.
WHITE GHOST 3% is available in jerrycans, plastic drums, steel drums, pallet containers (totes) and in bulk. UL approved packaging is available for WHITE GHOST 3%, in 20 kg plastic jerrycans and 200 kg plastic drums.
WHITE GHOST 3% may be stored, over a long period of time, in the sealed original containers and in corrosion resistant plastic or mild steel tanks. Storage temperatures range from -15°C to +50°C. Temporary freezing, at temperatures below the specified frost resistance limit, will not affect the
WHITE GHOST 3% has a shelf life of >10 years, if stored according to our recommendations (see technical info leaflet B.FL 025 ‘storage protein foam concentrates).

|Special notes||WHITE GHOST 3% poses no health risk, provided it is used as intended as fire extinguishing foam. Fire fighting exercise and testing may have to be agreed with local authorities. Take into account when spraying persons with foam that they will not be able to breathe whilst covered with foam. See material safety data sheet for further information.|
